What? Our third annual SIGJ, the weirdest chillest game jam in Seattle.
Where? The Pacific Science Center (200 2nd Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109)
When? November 8th - November 10th, Friday night to Sunday night

The Theme Is... "Intentionally Broken"

The theme was announced during the kickoff presentations at the start of the jam. The theme was pitched and voted on by our lovely Patreon community.

Some Optional Themes - Local Flavors

Similar to the Global Game Jam's diversifiers, these optional themes can add secondary constraints to your project. Each optional theme is flavored with local Seattle lore! We recommend these optional themes for more experienced jammers, and even then, only one or two optional themes.

  1. Never Wetter: Make a game where it never stops raining.
  2. Teriyaki: Make it seem like your game was created in Japan, even though it was actually created here.
  3. Salmon Run: End your game where it began.
  4. Only Tourists Carry Umbrellas: Make a game where the most obvious solution is never used.
  5. Chihuly's Legacy: Style your game's visuals as a tribute to glass art.
  6. Seattle Freeze: Make friends with a stranger (in game or IRL).
  7. Thrift Shop: Make a game with only reused assets (maybe from past jam games).
  8. Coffee Hometown Brew: Design a game where the main character is never still.
  9. Whale of a Tale: Make a game featuring orcas.
  10. The Puget Sound: Compose a grunge soundtrack for your game.
  11. Made Here, Slay The Spire:  Make a game that progresses only upward.
  12. Made Here, Tumblestone: Make a game where all the characters are cubes with cute faces on them.
  13. Made Here, Galak-Z: Make a game where the primary goal is firing an unrealistic number of missiles all at once.
